Windows 7: Physical Memory at 50%

I saw in your system spec that you are using a few diff OS such as ubunto..etc. I have no experiences with other OS. In fact, I just came to hear of ubunto recently as compared to linux. Do you mind sharing some of your experiences with these OS?
When I was filling out my specs 18 months ago, I was playing around a lot with Ubuntu and Fedora. I have not really done anything with it since. I found the Linux distros to be less user friendly than Vista or Windows7. Maybe I should try Ubuntu again. It is an interesting OS but just time consuming to learn.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bits OS

I see. I agree. But it seems that in the industry, there are quite a number of company that uses linux instead of windows even though windows appear to be more user friendly. The next thing that I can think of could be that linux os is more secured. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

I don't know about secure per se. But its a safe bet less viruses are made for linux. Linux has the smallest user base, so you'd be reaching a lot less people than by creating a virus for Windows or OSX. Plus, viruses aren't like they were in the 80s. They aren't made by guys in their moms basements seeing how many people they can mess with. Now they are mostly made with the intent of making money. Since Linux is free, chances are the users of it are less likely to just spend money like this person.

He has only 2GBs of RAM. For that I think it is normal. And he did already tweak most startups with moderate success.
